Teatime and Toys at Kensington Palace (12 images)
Today we had a fantastic time exploring Queen Victoria's childhood toys at Kensington Palace. Some of us even got to dress up as local children from 200 years ago and Victoria's maids. We had such a super time and we can't wait to build our own old-fashioned 'thaumatropes' back in the classroom!

Magical Toy Museum (11 images)
Today we kick-started our Toys topic in style with Freshwater Theatre's Magical Toy Museum! We explored toys in the past, comparing them to those in the present. We learned about the history of the teddy bear, we investigated how to make different toys move and we even had the opportunity to create (in our minds!) our very own toy to put in the museum. Here's our workshop in action!

Who Built the Ark? Noah! Noah! (6 images)
We so enjoyed leading worship today for Early Years and KS1. We re-told God's Creation story and the story of Noah's Ark through song, helping us all to reflect on the importance of looking after God's beautiful world.

Sensational Senses! (34 images)
We have been learning all about the 5 senses in Science and how to use them mindfully. We described the smells of different herbs, guessed the flavour of different crisps and explored the texture of unusual materials like horse hair and sandpaper. Here is us in action...

Our Local Area (5 images)
We started our Local Area topic by following a map around Gloucester Road and spotting geographical and physical features along the way. Soon we will start to build a map of our local area in 3D - we can't wait!
